The genius of Mike Myers spoof on British spy flicks was that even if you never seen a Bond film this ode to the swinging ‘60s was funny to all audiences. The colorful costumes were great eye candy for what is essentially a fish out of water tale. Powers is unfrozen in contemporary times where sexual politics have changed. Myers played several characters. Dr. Evil looked like 007' nemesis Blofeld but his personality was modeled after SNL creator Lorne Michaels. The one-liners ("Groovy, baby! Yeah!") are stale these days but the original remains the best spy satire ever.
